This amounts to saying that URLs take precedence over CURIEs and CURIEs can
be enclosed in brackets in case of any ambiguity.  This sounds ridiculous
given the weight you put on avoiding ambiguities and name clashes.  Since
the author does not control the URL scheme registration process, he can
never be sure that a particular prefix is "safe", therefore using unsafe
CURIEs is just asking for trouble.  However, Manu's examples DO NOT use safe
CURIEs, nor do any examples I have seen on this discussion.  Good heavens!~
